Casselberry Neighborhood Improvement Grant Program
Neighborhood Improvement Grant Program

I.             
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Promotion of high quality neighborhoods shows commitment by the City and its citizens in the areas of economic stability, exceptional quality of life, community serenity, and security.

Therefore, the City Commission has approved project funding in the amount of $50,000 for the 2013-2014 fiscal year which allows homeowners and neighborhood organizations to apply to the City for monies to be used toward neighborhood or housing improvements through a reimbursable matching grant process.

II.              WHO CAN APPLY?

The grant process is available to 1) existing homeowners, 2) volunteer or contractual HOAs, and 3) Non-organized neighborhood groups. The City offers three types of grants for FY 13-14:

  • Homeowner Improvement Grant (HIG)  Maximum match $5,000 
    Available to individual residents for homeowner improvement projects
  • Neighborhood Beautification Grant (NGB) – Maximum match $1,500
    Available to HOAs for neighborhood beautification projects
  • Neighborhood Empowerment Mini-grant (NEM) – Maximum match $100
    Available to non-organized resident groups for site specific neighborhood projects

Each grant type is subject to its own criteria, eligibility, and funding. For example, all applicants must live in the City limits. Homes must be occupied and owned by the applicant for six (6) months and HOAs must be in existence for at least one (1) year prior to submitting an application for the HIG and NGB grants respectively.

III.              PROGRAM CALENDAR

Applicants may submit their proposals to the City of Casselberry Community Development Department starting February 3, 2014 and closing no later than Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 5:00 pm. Faxed and e-mailed proposals will not be accepted.
